Hon. Beti Kamya is a bit bitter, much?

What else do you expect from the mouth of Betty Kamya, she knows that her career as a politician in Uganda without President Museveni is as short as her eyebrows”Tamale Mirundi

Today, Beti Kamya the State Minister for Kampala, who was appointed by President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni in June 2016. Wouldn’t have a political career worth thinking about. If she wasn’t appointed by him and that she let her succeed Frank Tumwebaze in this role. Therefore, she is now playing one of the main antagonizer against the Forum for Democratic Change, but to understand all of this. Will show a little of her political history after showing the disregard she has for the party today. This is from the woman who at one point asked if Museveni had heart, to years later saying he was wiser than his whole cabinet. So if you want to know someone who tries to finesse herself politically, she is one of them.

Kamya today:

““What is happening in FDC is very good for Uganda for many reasons, because it teaches us about real life politics in Uganda,” Kamya said. She said it is hypocritical for some FDC leaders to criticise NRM yet they are worse. “I am one of the persons who have faced the party’s wrath when the party’s constitution was changed during the nomination day, so what Winnie Kiiza is talking about has not started today but way back when the party has just started,” she said” (Esther Namutamba -’ Beti Kamya “happy” that FDC is in turmoil, says party has tasted its bitter medicine’ 07.08.2018 link: http://nilepost.co.ug/2018/08/07/beti-kamya-happy-that-fdc-is-in-turmoil-says-party-has-tasted-its-bitter-medicine/).

(1)Failed in Reform Agenda and needed FDC:

Ms Kamya had argued that the criterion used by the FDC leadership to select the national chairman contravened the party constitution and showed discrimination against the Baganda, her tribe, within the party. She lost her post as minister of agriculture in the FDC shadow cabinet. Ms Kamya did exceptionally well in the 2006 elections, polling more than double the number of votes of her nearest contender, Mr Kayongo Tom (NRM). But will Ms Kamya poll so well without FDC support? Rubaga North has in the last two presidential elections consistently voted for Dr Kizza Besigye, who received 51.3 per cent of the votes in 2001 as head of the transient Reform Agenda and 55.1 per cent in 2001 as FDC flag bearer. She failed in her 2001 attempt to enter Parliament as a representative with the Reform Agenda. Some FDC officials say Ms Kamya’s victories in the constituency are because of her association with the party” (Katherine Haywood and Flavia Nalubega – ‘Rubaga North seat: Kamya abandons FDC’ 14.01.2010 link: http://www.monitor.co.ug/SpecialReports/688342-842382-otd4lxz/index.html).

(2) Before 2016:

They reportedly told her to admit that she miscalculated when she took the decision to contest for the highest office and asked her not to waste time again. Ms Kamya was a contestant in the 2011 Ugandan presidential elections. However, Ms Kamya, who accepted to contest for Parliament next year, is said to have told her supporters that she participated in the 2011 elections not to win but to launch the federal ideology outside Buganda; she calls it ‘Ugandanisation’ of federo. Apparently, Ms Kamya’s return has taken current Rubaga North MP Moses Kasibante by surprise since he thought the former FDC strong lady would contest for presidency again” (Daily Monitor – ‘Kasibante on tension over Beti Kamya’s return’ 27.01.2015 link: http://www.monitor.co.ug/News/National/Kasibante-on-tension-over-Beti-Kamya-s-return/688334-2603590-nk1s8uz/index.html).

(2)After 2016 elections:

Rubaga North Member of Parliament Moses Kasibante has retained his seat after successfully protesting what he called manipulation of the original results recorded at the polling stations. Kasibante garnered 17,802 votes representing 34% of the total votes cast. His immediate rival, former area MP Beti Kamya got 16,664 votes which is 32% of the vote. Kamya, the Uganda Federal Alliance party president, had been provisionally announced as winner yesterday forcing Kasibante to protest. Kasibante and his team queried the results which were being tallied alleging that the number of votes had been manipulated to favour Kamya” (Beatrice Nyangoma – ‘Kasibante Retains Rubaga North Seat’ 20.02.2016 link: https://ugandaradionetwork.com/story/kasibante-successfully-protests-election-irregularities-retains-lubaga-north-mp-seat).

As we see, she should be little more humble on her place, as she has her sponsor and only has a political life because of Museveni. Therefore, her throwing shade is a bit bitter. We can see that it didn’t work out in the Reform Agenda, but when she joined the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) in 2006, she got enough votes to become a Member of Parliament because of the support of the party. From there she went to another party and founded Uganda Federal Alliance (UFA), where she ran for President in 2011. Where she got 52,782 votes and just a 1000 more votes, than Abed Bwanika; shows how little her reach was. However, she tried to run on the UFA platform for 2016 MP in Rubaga North, than against incumbent Moses Kasibante, the Erias Lukwago affiliate and Independent Candidate in the Rugaba Division. Therefore, she lost and wasn’t even in Parliament for the second time.

She wouldn’t have been in Parliament and in the Cabinet if it wasn’t for Museveni. When she had the support of the FDC, she won a seat in 2006 to 2011. However, by that time she gotten disgruntled, as she tried to go through the ranks, but the party didn’t deliver to her fast enough. Lost internal-party elections and didn’t get positions. That is why as the one in it to finesse it, she had to start her own and did so. However, that didn’t work well. She is now promising big wins in the opposition stronghold. Maybe, if she was sincere and knew the reality, she knows these are lies. But that helps her cause, which is serving Museveni.

And with her hypocrisy the Rugaba Division in Kampala, should know how she has changed. From being a full-blown Museveni critic, to become her vocal supporter. Going from Reform Agenda, supported and parts of FDC into UFA where it all failed and now appointed by the NRM. However, still being bitter that the Independent Kasibante, Lukwago affiliate can win over her in the polls. She has clearly a missed message and lack of real message. That is why she is mad at the FDC. Because, she haven’t had a real elected positions since she was in the FDC.

Kamya need to work on herself. Unless, she wants to be crony and loyalists for a cause, which is on rotten cause by the dictator. Where she has no way after the fall and where she will struggle to find shelter after Museveni is gone. Because everyone knows what she is and how little real she is. Peace.

Former Buganda Premier Dan Muliika Spits Fire over Kampala Expansion (Youtube-Clip)

“Buganda Kingdom reviews documents of proposals on the expansion of Kampala, there’s still uncertainty on how the largest Kingdom in Uganda is likely to react to the plans. Former Buganda Premier Dan Muliika talks to Canary Mugume on the on-going debate about the proposed expansion of Kampala city to integrate fast-growing suburbs of Wakiso, Mpigi and Mukono” (NBS Television, 01.04.2018)

New Powers assigned to Hon. Beti Kamya: Not only a Minister for Kampala, but soon also Wakiso, Mukono and Mpigi!

Museveni changes Beti Kamya’s portfoil ahead of extending Kampal boundaries, this means that Mukono,Wakiso and Mpigi are nolonger under Ministry of Local Government as they now form part of the Kampala Metropolitan area. Mukama otuwonya ddi Kitange?” (Betty Nambooze, 22.03.2018).

This can be said after a letter sent to the Chairman of Kampala District Land Board Yusuf Nsibambi, the Executive Director of Kampala Capital City Authority Dr. Jennifer Musisi and the Commandant of Kampala Metropolitan Police Office Frank Mwesigwa got a letter from Secretary Office of the President Samuel Emiku, the letter named: “Name of Ministry in-charge of Kampala”.

The new name the people get to know is the Ministry for Kampala Capital City and Metropolitan Area. That means the Ministry will get a bigger slice and more control. That meaning the Presidency has big faith in the acts of Beti Kamya, as her portefolio are now extending and also taking away from others. What you can also take from the Secretary, is that he didn’t notify neither districts mentioned by the Members of Parliament or the Lord Mayor of Kampala Erias Lukwago. There was other who should have been informed like the 5 district mayors and the Wardens, the councilors of the capital should feel punished too. Also, the extended branch of the Presidential Advisor Singh Katongole. But what has said or done recently, other than cashing-in a paycheck.

This here is really an extension and rare, since the paradigm under President Museveni is to make things smaller and hire more cronies. Not extending and giving more power to individuals. This is tampering with the modus operandi of late. Kamya must have given a lot of incentive and promise over the recent time to be offered a higher stake. If not, he want the Residential District Commanders and the others in the near-by districts to be under the command. As it is a fitting way for the State House to control it even more directly, because Kamya will work on direct orders and not flinch.

So, just like the way Kamya has stripped the elected leadership in Kampala, she is set to control Wakio, Mukono and Mpigi. This is really to secure the will of Museveni even further and more detailed, as she has followed his instruction on every market and every decree. She has praised him and he now repays her. While taking away powers and limits the scope of the Ministry of Local Government, who will loose these areas.

The letter from the Secretary of the President is really showing this and proving how he wants to tangle even more elected officials, with the appointed minister Kamya. It is really a way of controlling mayors and district officials. Peace.

Opinion: The Goblin’s family finally slapped by the state!

Since the November 2017 Coup in Harare, the Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) has been friendly to the former President Robert Mugabe and his extended family. The ZANU-PF have let the family eat plenty have a giant package of money and also a big pension for the 37 year long presidency. Today, it is released a document telling, that the state is finally taking action against the family and their possession.

On the 16th March 2018 in the High Court of Harare, where Judge President Justice Chiweshe ordered eviction of Russel Goreraza, Grace Mugabe and Kennedy Fero. These three has lost in court, where they are now evicted from the properties of 409 Harare Drive, Pamona, Harare; 18 Cambridge Drive, Avondale, Harare; 75 King George, Avondale, Harare. All of these properties will go back to companies that owns the properties, since the Mugabe family has been squatting here.

This here is proof that the time has changed, this would never has happen in 2017, but it is in 2018. It might a proof that the President Emmerson Mnangagwa wants to show strength too, because of the blessings of National Patriotic Front and the support of the G-40 Members to the new party, before the up-coming elections. Therefore, the ruling regime want to show the former first family, that they are not untouchable anymore.

This here is vital if people been evicted or alleged crimes by the former first family, the can now petition the courts and get refunded for their hurt, even get their land and properties back. Who knows what more businesses, farms and other frauds the Mugabe family has done and could also lose if people petitioned it. When the state has been run by the family and cronies, they can now get it back and also see justice in these matters.

It is at least hope and proof that the Mugabe family is not untouchable, they can actually lose a court case and the petitioners has a chance. Last year, the courts would have dismissed or not given it merit even. Because Mugabe family good whatever they wanted and got away with it. Now the table has turned.

Mugabe family has been evicted from three properties, that is historic and a proof that time has changed. It is also a sign that the ZANU-PF plans to answer if the former President continues to cry havoc in the press. They will answer, because they will not show mercy, if the Mugabe creates drama. Peace.

Zimbabwe: Statement on Former President Mugabe (16.03.2018)

Opinion: Mugabe shouldn’t cry foul, he should enjoy his retirement!

Mugabe bitter at Mnangagwa’s “betrayal”. “On my side, I always had Mnangagwa. I brought (Mnangagwa) into govt. I never thought he whom I had nurtured, and whose life I had saved in prison when he was threatened with hanging, that one day he’d be the man that turned against me”. Mugabe: “I don’t hate Emmerson. I brought him into Government. But he must be proper. He is illegal.” He says he’s ready to speak to ED to correct things. “We don’t deserve it. Please we don’t deserve it.”. Mugabe offers to negotiate with Mnangagwa. “But I must be invited, properly invited for that discussion”” (Zim Media Review, 15.03.2018).

It is insulting to the people of the Republic of Zimbabwe. Where Robert Mugabe was President for 37 years. Where he run everything and left nothing behind. He touched everything and everyone. His decisions was made in his interests. He made it violent, he rigged himself into power and he used all the tricks in the book to stay in power. Suddenly in November 2017, the Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) who ousted him with help of the army in coup. That is right, but he didn’t have a birthday to be on the throne until death.

It is rare when someone like him speaks of illegal, that former comrade Mugabe is blaming Mnangagwa, the man who rig himself again and again. The man who tarnished, nearly killed the opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai, the man who has detained activists, where up to 5,000 MDC activists are still not accounted for by the ZANU-PF government. Even months after the fall of Mugabe, there are enough human rights violations, enough skeletons in the closet to keep him in prison forever if anyone collected evidence and affidavits.

Mugabe should be careful with his mouth, since he is living lavish, he is still having his blue-roof and the family is still getting a hefty pension. That is more than President Canaan Banana. Therefore, sometimes, silence is the best medicine. If Mugabe was wise, he would haven’t said a god damn thing. Clearly, the former professor, has lost his marbles. Since he talks and says things that doesn’t make sense.

It is right that President Mnangagwa haven’t been directly elected, but was helped by the army. Which he has offered positions in the cabinet. Mugabe shouldn’t expect a discussion or invitation to negotiate anything, unless it is to get out of jail free card. I know Zimbabwe isn’t Monopoly, but that card shouldn’t have. His kind which has eaten on the state, used the police and army to oppress people for generations. Kept opposition in prison, if not they have exiled. Clearly, this man after his ousting, should pray to God for the Mercy, ZANU-PF and Mnangagwa showed him. They could have chopped his head-off, but instead they should dignity and mercy on the old man.

Mugabe, do yourself favor, retire with grace, really retire with Grace. Its time do much ado nothing. It’s time for him to be silent, not talk, he has done more than enough. Mugabe has hurt enough people and oppressed enough of them. His tricks is used, his time is spent and he is lucky he isn’t lingering in jail until his final day on earth.

So please, former comrade and liberator, the former dictator and almighty, please shut-up and just be retired. Not complain, because your lucky enough already, your blessed enough already and has still all your things. Other ones in your shoes was taken around town, flogged and then killed. You got off easy, maybe should consider that for a little moment. Peace.

Zimbabwe Election Commission: “Re: Notification of Existence of National Patriotic Front (NPF)” (13.03.2018)

Zimbabwe: Press Statement by the Zanu PF Secretary for Information and Publicity Cde. J.K. Moyo on the Ocassion of the Extraordinary Session of the Politiburo (14.03.2018)

Zimbabwe: NPF – “Unconstitutional Attacks on President Robert Mugabe Must Stop” (13.03.2018)

The Zanu-PF is ready to pump up the image of the Mnangagwa Family: The First person is the First Lady!

The Zimbabwean state media is preparing to celebrate the First Lady Auxilla Mnangagwa, in the same fashion as it did with Grace Mugabe. The Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF), is working on the same sort of actions as it did in the 37 years under Robert Mugabe. The difference now is that the leaders is Emmerson Mnangagwa, the husband of Auxilla. That is why this is important, since the watershed moment of the bloodless coup in November 2017. The ruling regime is planning similar acts as it did before.

Now on the 8th March 2018, Advertising Media Association (ADMA) sent a letter out, where they are planning a “First Lady Cde Auxilla Mnangagwa Birthday Celebration Supplement” that is coming out on the 25th March 2018. This is making a supplement to Sunday Mail and Sunday News. If it is for them or for the Herald, The Chronicle, Kwayedza, Umthunywa, H. Metro, Business Weekly, B Metro and Southern Times. All of these will have something that is celebrating Auxilla.

If you see now, the state and media houses connected are starting to celebrate and use the Mnangagwa family, in the same significance as it did to Mugabe. This should be found worrying, since it creates the control of the family and their leadership. To deliver Congratulatory Messages, also explain why they are creating the same narrative as they did with the first family of Mugabe. Like in 2017, the Zimbabwe Media spread the news of the “loving mother” on Grace’s birthday, that was on 23rd July 2017. Then one of the papers dropped a 12 page supplement.

Therefore, the lines between Mnangagwa and Mugabe is stopping, the changes are just the name on the ballot-box. The rest is more of the same, as the papers are preparing for praise, to get the State Owned Enterprises and Government institutions to praise the new First Lady. Just alike the ones coming last year in July. Now it might something alike on the 25th March, a supplementary piece in honor of Auxilla.

So, if you believe the Lacoste, the Zanu-PF really changed it didn’t. Just the head. Nothing else, though some more military men in the positions and the military has more power. Not like that is good, but that is the reality.

Now they are preparing to build the legacy, the fancy narratives and the image of the glorious first family and their adventures. It is really gearing up. Now with the birthday of the First Lady. They are really making her image triumphant, make the first family living legends. Such, as they built everything around the Mugabe’s family at their time of reign. Peace.
